New Iberia City Marshal Charged in Forgery InvestigationFeb 04, 2021 03:23PM ● By Flint Zerangue, Sr.
New Iberia – Earlier today, New Iberia City Marshal Haywood “Tony” Migues was charged and booked into the Iberia Parish Jail following an investigation into alleged falsifying of subpoena signatures. The investigation began last month as Detectives with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations received information alleging multiple signatures had been forged by Migues on official court documents. A thorough investigation confirmed Migues forged the signature of multiple individuals showing they had been served with a subpoena in lieu of making personal service. Based on this information, investigators secured an arrest warrant for Migues.
On February 4, 2021, Migues (age 67) turned himself in to investigators. Migues was charged with eight counts of forgery, injuring public records, and malfeasance in office. He was booked into the Iberia Parish Jail without incident.
He has since bonded out of jail. Charges against Migues include:
[RS14:72] FORGERY ($) -- (8) 10,000 BOND AW 1ST APP/ PJ JUDGE BORNE
[RS14:132] INJURING PUBLIC RECORDS ($) -- (8) ATT W/ FORGERY/ PJ
[RS14:134] MALFEASENCE IN OFFICE ($) -- (8) ATT W/ FORGERY/ PJ
According to TFC Thomas Gossen, Louisiana State Police - Troop I, this is an active and ongoing investigation. No further information is available at this time.
